I am re-re-tabbing this song for WHOTABS. This one is user friendly so you don't 
have to count for 33 seconds before you start AND because it's a simple song, it 
is interchangeable with the live versions. At the bottom of the page are some 
notes on how John E. and Pino P. play it live. 

(Synthesizer intro)

  1&2&3&4& 1&2&3&4& X13
G|--------|--------|    Before THE WHO had their own pianist John E. would  
D|3-------|--------|    play the piano part by himself (at live versions), but on the 
A|------3-|1-------|    album version he doesn't come in until Roger starts
E|--------|--------|    singing. The number of repeats are from the album version.

G|--------|--------|--------|
D|3-------|3-------|3-------|
A|--------|--------|--------|
E|--------|--------|--------|

(vocals only)

Don't cry.
Don't raise your eye.
It's only teenage wasteland

(Come back in)

  1&2&3&4& 1&2&3&4& 
G|--------|--------|    Just keep on playing until the solo. 
D|3-------|--------|    
A|------3-|1-------|    
E|--------|--------|    

(guitar solo)

  1&2&3&4& 1&2&3&4& 
G|--------|--------|    Now keep playing until Roger shouts WE'RE ALL WASTED! 
D|3-------|--------|    
A|------3-|1-------|    PS. There's a tempo change here.
E|--------|--------|    

  1&2&3&4& 1&2&3&4&
G|--------|--------|
D|--------|--------|
A|3-------|3-------|
E|--------|--------|

  1&2&3&4& 1&2&3&4&
G|--------|--------|
D|--------|--------|
A|1-------|1-------|
E|--------|--------|

  12341234 12341234 12341234 12341234  x3
G|--------|--------|--------|--------|   After the 2nd repeat the violin comes in.
D|--------|--------|3-------|1-------|
A|3-------|1-------|--------|--------|
E|--------|--------|--------|--------|

  12341234 12341234 12341234
G|--------|--------|--------|   
D|--------|--------|3-------|
A|3-------|1-------|--------|
E|--------|--------|--------|

Here while the violin is going crazy the guitar and BASS will fade up with:

  1&2&3&4& 1&2&3&4&
G|:--------|--------:|
D|:--3---3-|--3---3-:|   repeat this until the violin starts going 
A|:3---3---|3---3---:|   really fast on that single note.
E|:--------|--------:|

  1   2   3   4    1   2   3   4   
G|:----------------|----------------:|
D|:----------------|----------------:|
A|:3333333333333333|3333333333333333:|
E|:----------------|----------------:|

  
G|----------------|----------------|
D|----------------|3---------------|
A|3333333333333333|----------------|
E|----------------|----------------|

WHAT A GREAT SONG!

///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

NOTES ON LIVE VERSIONS:

There are little alterations when it comes to live versions.

John E: 

                       G|--------|--------|
                       D|3-------|--------|
                       A|------3-|1-------|
Instead of the normal  E|--------|--------|  that John plays he 
           
               1 2 3 4  1   2   3   4
             G|--------|----------------|
             D|3-------|------------333-|
             A|------3-|1-------111-----|
often plays  E|--------|----------------| or some other variation.

///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

Pino P.

Pino usually starts out with the normal opening but when Zak kicks in on the drums 
he goes like this

  1 2 3 4  1   2   3   4   
G|--------|----------------|
D|3-------|--------8-------|
A|------3-|1---------------|
E|--------|---------6-6-66-|

And for the main riff he does this

  1   2    3     4    1   2   3   4   
G|------10-10-10-----|----------------|
D|-------------------|--------8-------|
A|8------------------|----------------|
E|---------------8---|6--------6-6-6\8|

I've heard him do many variations and if you play with it for a while you'll get some
 cool riffs.

HAVE FUN!
